please only for tutors who have watched Exit Through the Gift Shop film
In class, we will view the “documentary” film Exit Through the Gift Shop, a film by Banksy. Following the viewing and subsequent discussion in class you will write a 2-3 page paper answering the following questions…
What is the true nature of art? How does consumerism affect art? Can art be owned by a consumer? What is the difference between art and vandalism?
and finally…Is this all an elaborate prank? A fake? Did Banksy pull a fast one on all of us, and if he did, what is he trying to say about art, politics, and society in general?
